Interviewing is a 2-way street. Yes, it is your opportunity to find out more about the candidate sat in front of you however it is also their chance to understand more about your company.
Recruitment done poorly is costly both financially and potentially to your reputation. If a bad decision is made it could also result in a loss of productivity and a negative effect on the team. We are all guilty of oversharing a bad experience and this will impact your reputation so getting it right is of paramount importance.
Have you gone through the process via your candidates’ eyes? Is it clear what your company values are? Are you being clear about your culture? Here are our top 3 tips to make the whole experience a better one for the candidate:
1. Get the Team Involved
Nothing shows off your company culture more than the team. Let them meet not only their manager but some other key people such as team members they will be working closely with and other members of the management team.
2. Keep the Line Of Communication Open
Make sure the candidate is kept in the loop throughout the process. Keeping the candidate engaged not only shows you are interested but also how you operate as a company.
Make sure you always feedback to a candidate. Good or bad they can learn from this.
